The horses we are fostering below belong to End of the Trail Horse Rescue in Olathe Colorado. Our goal in partnering with EOTTR is to provide training for these horses for the six months they are with us for our educational programs. Our comprehensive training helps to make these horses more adoptable and more likely to be placed in permanent homes. BRHC provides horse ownership training for potential adopters and a boarding facility after adoptions take place.
About End of the Trail Horse Rescue
A predominant goal of EOTTR is to prevent the needless abandonment, neglect, and destruction of horses in our area. Their website says, "Accomplishing our goal requires diverse activities, such as, public education and outreach, horse sanctuary and protection; medical and rehabilitation, and equine therapy programs, which pair horses with humans in order to foster healing and good mental health. We are in the process of expanding our services and capabilities in order to meet growing needs in our area. We also want to ensure that we provide for horses and people’s needs for the foreseeable future. With your help, we can build an amazing legacy for horses, and people in need."

Horse Adoption Testimonials
A happy ending story for Tango, one of our fostered rescue horses who was adopted this summer by one of our volunteers, Kay Gilbert. Cute couple!!
In 2016, the first season at Blue River Horse Center, a 3 year old Friesian mix named Roo was one of the 15 horses to participate in the BRHC educational programs and horse foster care. For me, as a volunteer at the Center, it was love at first sight. Roo, now fondly called Liberty Roo, is a big part of my family’s and my lives.
At 3 months old, Roo was abandoned at the Delta Horse Sale Lot. The buyers took her mother and left the her tied to a post. She was immediately taken to Dreamcatchers Horse Therapy in Olathe, Colorado, run by Kathy Hamm, who lovingly took care of her for three years.
As a result, Liberty Roo is very affectionate and loves people. My life is so much richer because she has come into my life. Our story is a true example of what Blue River Horse Center is all about, bringing people and horses together!

Candice was the caretaker out at the Ranch from November 2015 to October 2016. She lived at the ranch with her horse Alibi until the horses from Dreamcatchers came in May. When she decided to move to Westcliffe she wanted a companion for Alibi and choose Mary. Before getting pregnant in 2017 she was able to ride and connect with Mary and now that she has settled into motherhood she is spending more time with her and will hopefully get her to the point where she can trust putting her daughter on her.
